Ferguson High is designated an Alternative Education Campus (AEC) by the Colorado Department of Education. This designation means 90% or more of our students fall into at least one of the at risk categories identified by Colorado Statute (SB-09-163). Questions in this application help determine if a student qualifies in one or more of these categories and if they are a good fit to join the Ferguson community.
